The Octo Finissimo Automatic in sandblasted rose gold pushes the boundaries of watchmaking feasibility: each element has been conceived and designed right from the outset so as to contribute to the extreme overall slenderness of this exceptional timepiece. In the 15th and 16th century, Italian artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci excelled in creating both innovative and timelessly beautiful masterpieces. Driven by the same genius, Octo combines a unique octagonal design – inspired by the 310 AD Roman Massentius Basilica - with exceptional mechanisms. Epitome of resilience and finesse, the Octo Finissimo Automatic asserts its stature as a supremely contemporary timepiece bringing the strength of modern materials to the muscle of architectural design.
